Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

RE: Republican calls for email and IM monitoring

Steve fumes: "Just makes you proud to be a Republican, doesn't it, Andy? It is official now: I loathe the Republicans just as much as I do the Democrats, maybe more. The Democrats are just Marxian socialists, the Republicans have decided to become full-blown fascists."

It doesn't make me proud, but I'm not going to throw the party off the cliff by this action by Rep. Lamar Smith (I think that was his name.) I would suggest that one could send an e-mail to his office voicing one's displeasure, or send an e-mail or place a phone call to one's local representative's office (in our case, Rep. Virginia Foxx's office) to voice disapproval of this proposal. Getting mad on here isn't going to help matters... Talk to your representatives... Take part in the process.
